makes one drink

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
4 large mint leaves (I substituted 1 shiso leaf, torn into several large pieces)
2 teaspoons sugar
approx. 1/2 cup brewed green tea, chilled
1 ounce white rum

Muddle the lime juice, mint (or shiso), and sugar together in a Collins glass until the leaves bruise lightly and the flavors release. Add ice until glass is about 3/4 full and then pour in rum and green tea. Stir thoroughly.

To serve as a pitcher drink: Multiple the ingredients by the number of guests. Muddle the lime juice, mint, and sugar. Combine with the green tea and white rum in a pitcher and stir to combine. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
